couple of days and will be preparing as you know his partner senator john kerry who will be filling the shoes in these mock proposals. the campaign doesn't want to talk a whole lot about the preparation. they don't really want a lot of process stories. and they really want to emphasize the fact that mitt romney has been spending time preparing as they try to set expectations very high for president obama's opponent. >> thank you. >>> and we're counting down to the first debate once again, this coming wednesday. our complete coverage begins at 7 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. let's dig a little deeper right now with ron bron steen, the editorial director of the national journal. if you're looking at all the demographics right now, where are the major differences between these two candidates? >> what you're seeing to a surprising extent in the last several weeks is president obama essentially reassembling the coalition that eleked him in 2008. >> why is that surprising? >> in 2010, democrats suffered big erosion in key parts of that coalition and also saw turnout decline. what you've

advisors, those helping him whether john kerry playing mitt romney or other aides underestimated mitt romney? >> i don't think so at all. we knew that mitt romney was preparing for this debate. the earliest candidate on record to do so. started preparations in july. did five mock sessions within 48 hours. took the entire week of the democratic convention down. and we saw him last yr, remember, he participated in 20 debates last year. he bragged about winning 16 of them. and after he mowed down his republican primary opponents, he'd tell them to stop whining. so i think everybody knew what we were in for. we expected a good performance from mitt romney. but that's what it was. it was performance art. he locked himself into some bad positions that he took during the republican primary, tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, refusing to -- a dime for the wealthiest. and to talk about on the campaign trail in the weeks ahead. >> i assume in the next presidential debate the president will be certainly much more aggressive. that's just my assumption. we'll see what happens. ben l

pretty hard in these debate sessions. senator john kerry, democrat of massachusetts, he's standing in for governor romney. senator rob portman, republican of ohio who's done this for years on the republican side, he's standing in for president obama. and both president obama and romney say they're getting roughed up. the president took a break, he had a campaign event out in nevada and after that he stopped by to witness the hoover dam. they're taking a break from these preparations. but when you talk to the staffs, they say both senator kerry and senator portman are being pretty tough. because the main point tomorrow is make your policy proposals. for governor romney, he has to say the president has failed. what would he do differently in the economy? for the president, to defend the economic record and the other proposal of the last four years. but the tell, the substance is most of the debate, but you don't want to make a mistake. you don't want to look at your watch or sigh or do something that could offend people out the there. so we're told all of these sessions, not all of t

you a little bit. you go back to 2004. john kerry went into the '04 debates down six or seven points in the polls to bush. he ended up losing by two or three points. romney's only down three points. romney needs to carry -- >> but he didn't win. here's the other thing. the average going back to 68, the average undecided has been 13.5%. right now, you have a small undecided electorate out there. you've had $72 million spent by the super pacs attacking the president. what is mitt romney going to say that $72 million hasn't said about the president? is he going to sing -- >> please, no singing. >> isn't it the truth that voters discount what is said in ads, because they already think it's spined and they trust a little bit more what the candidates say? >> people hate negative ads. >> there's a reason why they keep doing it, because they work. >> here's the bottom line, though. annual one of five are watching it. the persuadable voters are watching "american idol" or "dancing with the stars." >> they're going to hear the news the next day. >> the opinion makers, the people that they talk

. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did better at the next debate. but he did narrow the gap after that first debate. and in a race that's as closes a this, wolf, that could make all the difference. >> very close in florida and virginia, for example and a debate tonight could impact the undecided voters. thanks, gloria. >> uh-huh. >>> you want to talk about the trial of the century, it could have happened if the raid in pakistan had unfolded differently. and a woman who came close to death in portland, maine's harbor can thank her lucky stars for some alert bystanders ready to help her. everyone has goals. take the steps to reach yours, with us with real advice, for real goals. the us bank wealth management advisor can help you. every step of the way. from big steps, to little steps. since 1863 we've helped guide our clients, so they can take t

debate partners. maybe he needs to go practice with bill clinton. john kerry is not cutting it. >> he should have bill clinton in his ear the whole time the explainer in chief. i think if bill clinton, i think he should probably bring big bird with him. >> didn't big bird get fired? >> big bird, get a safe house. do it now. >> the bromance lasts until november. >> my advice is for joe biden. do not try to overwhen sate by going in there charging like the bulls of pam plo na in your debate. the only thing that may be worse than an overly passive barack obama is an overly aggressive joe biden. >> a bull in a china shop maybe. >> maybe. listen, if he's hard to control when he's on script, just imagine him unscripted in a debate. >> but the american people still like him. >> yeah. >> still like him. >> he's a likable guy. >> he's a regular joe. >> i think all republicans should love him because he is the gift that keeps on giving. >> so is paul ryan to some extent. go ahead, governor. >> it's been exactly one year since steve jobs passing. and my unsolicited advice today is for all of the
